Looking for Experimental Nuclear Physicists and Nuclear Engineers

  1. Apr 24, 2014 #1
    Hi All,

    I want to run some small nuclear transmutation experiments for a nuclear battery project. However, my knowledge of nuclear physics is very theoretical and I was looking to get mentored by a physicist or nuclear engineer who has experience with working with radiation sources. Here is my question:

    Does anyone know an experimental nuclear physicist or nuclear engineer located near Memphis, TN willing to help mentor a young engineer?

    Or better, is anyone on this a forum an experimental nuclear physicist or nuclear engineer located near Memphis, TN?

    Thanks,

    Zeph

    zeph - I doubt you will have much luck attracting help this way. Consider working through a teacher or professor if you are in school.

    you might try Memphis State. I see they offer a few nuclear courses.

    https://www.memphis.edu/physics/grad_physics.htm [Broken]

    see physics 6021 and 6110

    What kind of equipment and lab are you working with?
    And what's your idea of "close" ? U of Missouri at Rolla has a research reactor.
